Choose Between Two Options
$29 for dinner for two (up to an $64 total value)
$55 for dinner for four (up to a $128 total value)
Dinner includes the following per pair of diners:
- One small plate (up to a $14 value)
- Two large plates (up to a $25 value each)<p>
The seasonal menu plies diners with small plates of falafel with tahini and pita or fresh lump crab cakes with citrus aioli, and main courses of mussels in green harissa topped with greek yogurt or lamb shank braised in barolo wine on a bed of mashed potatoes.<p>
Although its eclectic selection of seasonal dishes features countless ingredients, Lura's design hinges on only two things: wood and rocks. Exposed-brick and stone walls accented by latticework surround wooden tables and thick timber columns while the heat from a gas fireplace wafts through the space. Patrons gather in this rustic setting to share Mediterranean-style tapas and indulge in hearty entrees.
Key Ingredients and Where to Find Them
- Harissa: Orders of mussels can arrive in a spicy broth tinged with this hot-chili paste.
- Parmigiano Reggiano: Creamy risotto becomes even more decadent with the addition of one of Italy's most iconic cheeses.
- Truffle: The chicken schnitzel's mashed potatoes benefit from the earthy, savory flavor of truffles.
- Tzatziki sauce: No rack of lamb leaves the kitchen without its side of refreshing, yogurt-based sauce.
- Carbon atoms: Almost every menu item has carbon in it somewhere.
Feasts for the Eyes and Ears
Within the cozy confines of its dining room, Lura provides patrons with plenty of opportunities to treat more than just their taste buds. In addition to displaying works by visual artists, the eatery also hosts live shows throughout the week. DJs and jazz bands entertain crowds on select evenings, and burlesque dancers perform every Tuesday and Saturday night.

“Great food flaborful. Happy Pleasent Service. Not a Huge cocktail or beer selection but good enough. Nice cozy place for good friends to have a good bite. Would recommend to the place a good Greek wine or two on the menu - and more appropriate music that matched the ambiance and flavor of food. Overall good time. Will go back”
